Have your say

The man charged with the murders of reclusive Forest Town pensioners Patricia and William Wycherley did not know his wife had transferred more that £40,000 from their accounts until after his arrest, Nottingham Crown Court has heard.

Christopher Edwards (57) told the court today (12th June) that he was unaware that his wife Susan Edwards (56) had opened a Halifax Building Society joint account in her and her mother’s name on May 5th 1998 - the day after the May bank holiday weekend in which they died.

Susan Edwards opened the account and transferred cash from other accounts belonging to William and Patricia Wycherley, whose bodies were recovered from a grave in the rear garden of their Blemheim Close home last year.
